CWE Ireland to Develop Wave Energy Project Off West Clare Coast

CWE Ireland has applied with the Department of the Environment for the licence to develop a five megawatt wave energy project off the west Clare coast, writes the Irish Times.

The company, which is a 100% owned subsidiary of Carnegie Wave Energy Limited, chose this site after a two year research.

Kieran O’Brien of CWE Ireland said that the wave potential off Co Clare was “one of the best in the world”, and that the company was hoping to start the test work next spring.

The application also states that the wave project will have no effect on the water sport activities or the fishing in that area.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
